Do Not Call list

Dear Editor:Whatever happened to the Do Not Call list? It's completely ignored and we hear nothing about enforcement. It would seem that an enforcement program with hefty fines could contribute to solving some of the state's financial problems, and perhaps even reward those who have been inconvenienced by the calls. Out of state or foreign callers? Hold the sponsors responsible. Companies are held responsible for actions of their employees all the time. They are paying the violator - let them collect there. Was this all just "feel good" legislation designed to make the authors popular while remaining toothless to appease the telephone lobbyists? If so, it's time for the state to grow some fangs. P.S. Hey folks, keep it simple. The ideas exchanged in this section of the Patriot help make it interesting, but if you can't make a point in less than 200 words, get help from a tweeting teenager.
